About the owner of this blog
When I graduated from Cornell, my student loan servicer called me the day after the ceremony wanting to know how soon I could start paying off the $20,000 I owed them (I also had almost $10k in credit card debt).
With that debt weighing on me, I decided not to pile on the stress of graduate school. Instead, I went to work right away and started paying back those loans as fast as I could.
I made smart use of every paycheck and started investing, dabbling in the stock market until I understood it better. Then, after a couple of years’ experience in the market, and with the support of my parents, I bought a house.
The house turned out to be a wise financial decision, and I got the property bug. Now, I own multiple rental properties. Hard work and diligence paid off at my job, and I became the youngest executive in the company’s history. Now, I own my own business and manage many more investment portfolios.
My current goal is to retire by 35!
